of the last candidate for president, mitt romney. but the thing that struck me the most about mitt romney's speech, which was his first major public appearance since losing the presidency, of the part at the end of his speech where he talked about the iraq war. he described the iraq war as a war of liberation. we fought the iraq war to liberate the iraqi people from tyranny. the iraq war was supposedly to get saddam hussein's weapons of mass destruction and the nuclear weapons he was going to set off. we were going into that war to stop him from giving those biological and chemical weapons to the terrorists that they told us he was working with in al qaeda. that's why they told us we had to go to war in iraq. that's what they told us about why we had to have that war. none of it was true. ten years ago when we invaded iraq, we were told it was all about 9/11, that if we didn't go invade iraq, that the next attack by the same people would be a nuclear attack. a chemical weapons talk or a nuclear attack. the smoking gun would be a mushroom cloud. and that's not true. there was relationship
about running for president when he schedules a trip to israel. mitt romney went to israel last year in a desperate attempt to exploit a republican lie, that there was some kind of difference between president obama and it's really prime minister benjamin netanyahu about what the borders of israel should be. romney was aided and abetted in that lie by netanyahu, who is an old friend of romney's. they worked together 30 years ago at a boston consulting firm. as we reviewed last night, netanyahu left no room for doubt, he wanted mitt romney to be the next president of the united states. and romney delivered a speech in israel that echoed netanyahu's talking points at that time on iran. >> we should employ any and all measures to dissuade the iranian regime from its nuclear course, and it is our fervent hope that diplomatic and economic measures will do so. in the final analysis, of course, no option should be excluded. we recognize israel's right to defend itself, and that it is right for america to stand with you. >> benjamin netanyahu did everything he could to pretend that the romne
their differences. >> we know he was sort of a supporter of romney. >> netanyahu preferred romney over obama. >> trying to influence an american election. >> there's a lot of water under the bridge. >> i think it is absolutely outrageous. >> you only tease the ones you love. >> some republicans coil at the party plans for the future. >> i know what our principles are. >> the chairman is in the hot seat. >> i am looking to get into communities in the hundreds. >> show up any time. >> i know what our principles are. >> it is what you say and do when you get there matters most to people. >> our party believes marriage is between one man and one woman. >> they haven't changed their policies. >> house republicans tomorrow vote on the ryan budget. >> notorious paul ryan budget. >> putting out yet again a budget. >> an actual budget, political manifesto or long term liability? >> we are not going to refight the past. >> our budget and your budget contrast. >> what happens next? >>> republican re-branding week continues to go, well, badly. especially if you listen to republicans. >> if any party nee
politics a lot. remember in the presidential campaign, this used to happen to mitt romney all the time. the worst one was that cnbc interview he did with scott pelley. >> my position has been clear throughout this campaign. i'm in favor of abortion being legal in the case of rape and incest and the health and life of the mother. >> rape and incest and health and life of the mother, except that's not supposed to be his position. he forgot what his actual position was. his campaign that to clean it up for him. the romney campaign will not say the candidate misspoke but a spokeswoman said he does not actually support an exception for the health of the woman. mr. romney did not misspeak, he just speaked something that missed what the he actually meant. it was also the time at a town hall debate and mr. romney was horrified by the whole idea of. >> it i don't believe employers should tell someone whether they should have contraceptive care or not. >> at the time, seemed like quite a relief. all these republicans support it. mitt romney does not support the blunt amendment to let your employ
romney's advisers said a transition from primary season to the general election campaign was almost like an etch a sketch? you can kind of shake it up and start all over again. well, enter romney's opponents giving new life to what i thought had become a forgotten children's toy. >> imagine had mitt romney been around at the time we were drafting our constitution? he'd have just shaken it and just shook it up after to rewrite it. >> given everything people have said about governor romney's flip-flops over the years, this was sort of capturing what everybody was afraid of. in a way we probably ought to thank his communications director for telling the truth. >> finally, minnesota senator al franken made transition from comedy to politics he left funny stuff behind to take on serious issues. still the two worlds of al franken merged when he rattled off a list of potentially dangerous consequences of not raising the debt ceiling back in 2011. >> no federal government employees, including counterterrorism agents, in the fbi, for example, no border agents. now, before we default, we could hav
carolina and rick perry in texas and ideally maybe even governor romney in massachusetts. they deal across the aisle and they deal with prak cal issues and they can help the party sort of see where the country's going and move ahead in a practical matter and take credit for it if the party is smart enough to take advantage of that. >> practicality, bipartisan thinking and nonideological thinking is the reason why people liked republican governors so easily. they don't like to make a big ideological choice and giving a reasonable bipartisan, non-ideological answer. i haven't thought much about it and it sounds fine to me. it's a reasonable answer as a gi that doesn't give much thought to something and even if you're a governor. here's another example, on monday morning at a press conference to review the rnc's 2012 autopsy, the chairman of the party reince priebus had kind words for senator rob portman who came out in favor of gay marriage. let's listen. >> how do you rein in the anti-gay and anti-women sentiments and bring these voters into the fold and who in the political arena do you th
happening the week after scott prouty made that video, the 47% tape at the romney fund-raiser, it was the tape that showed us what mitt romney was thinking. there wasn't anyone there, marco rubio to some extent took on that 47% tape indirectly, but they don't seem to be acknowledging that the concepts advanced in that video were devastating. >> right. >> and you can prove it in the polls the following week of the campaign. >> right. >> as howard said, it is not the packaging, it is what's in the cereal box. they're trying to change colors on the outside and pretend there's an entirely new product and everybody will be excited on the inside. you mention governors. from a strategist standpoint, i am reminded last time the republicans were in this predicament, they lost to a democrat the second term. congressional leadership was deathly unpopular, it was the tom delay days, and there was a governor named george bush in texas who decided to become a compassionate conservative, start talking about and appealing to the so-called diversity that rush talks about. but i remember
to work so what we saw was mitt romney ran a pretty good six months operation, but six months operations don't work very well against for your operations. lou: nobody had ever been in that situation before running against an incumbent. i like the fact republican party is looking critically and being pretty tough on itself in this report, but i have to be honest with you, the republican solutions for boosting grassroots support is the rnc to build a database of leaders. could you imagine such a thing? we need a database of leaders, the african-american, asian pacific islander communities. how about a database of the hispanics, blacks, the people of this country, get that database, to the heck with the leaders, you're talking about becoming leaders, through reaching out to those communities and seeking out the next generation of leaders in those communities. republicans should be, they said in this new report, speaking out when the ceos get big bucks. when they receive lots of money in retirement but the middle class gets shafted. folks, i said a year and a half ago on this broadcast which
an assault weapon bans. >> i'm with you. red state democrats up for reelection, states carried by romney, but they have to win it in 2014, they face pressure from both the right and to some extent programs as much but not necessarily from the level. the head of the change campaign committee said it will hurt democrats. with dustwuns it will be a major election issue for democrats opposing strong gun laws. in other words, the real democrats won't show, which in an off year would be a very bad idea. if there's a credible primary challenge, a vote would absolutely hurt an incumbent democrat. that's from howard green. let's look at they states now. it looks to me, sam, that you have states like out west, i want to see this list of human. pryor in arrange saw, in arc, mary landrieu, kay hagen, there's a lot of senators who have to run in conservative states, mitt romney states. how do they deal with this issue this. >> you know the left, the progressive community hasn't made that much of a stink about the assault weapons ban. that might be because they recognize the political difficulties, bu
successful and mitt romney was elected they would have gotten their way. neil: but, it is they might get their way with president behind them. but declines numbers, might make it difficult even with the president. >> no question, right to work, and end of collective bargaining is bad for unions and workers. you have republican governors, like chris christie, who is supportive of private sector unions and collective bargaining, it is not the end of the world, but, they will support a man who standing by their agenda, that is the way it works in washinnton. it works other way. so, you know, unions -- >> i don't know that they would have needed to getting any. a lot of folks watching this, say, i see they are in trouble in washington having a heck of a time since last year in wisconsin, losing out on some big state cutbacks even in california and what is going on across pretty were the southeast. so, they begin to feel like custer? >> i think for most part, you have to think about president obama's second term agenda, which you know, parts of it may affect the unions, but he is focused on g
, it's a good thing that mitt romney did not have any money in the cyprus banks. seriously, russia bailing out -- question, if cyprus leaves the euro zone, so what? does anyone care? >> no, and ben made a good point about the difficulty of valuing the gas reserves from what i heard, that may be the best p s option, it will not add more debt. if you borrow more money, we will not give you bail out. what other option do they have? >> ben steele, let me ask you, so, if cyprus is kicked out of the you're he oh -- the euro zone, does that trigger a run on leaving the euro zone, is greece next or does anybody care? >> it may very well lead to a crisis in the eu, larry. the cyprus is forced by the eu to abrogate the deposit insurance scheme, what does it mean for deposit insurance schemes throughout the eu, we could see a run on spanish banks and italian banks and u.s. money market funds are heavily exposed to european banks so there could be problems within the united states. >> so we may need russia to save the economy. holy cow, how did we get to this point. many thanks to ben steele,
was on "morning joe" today on this station with dan senor who is a romney campaign adviser and we were talking about the change in politics of gun control for these red state democrats. you're a democratic leader in the congress. look at this and give me your response. >> they are under a the lot of pressure to buck their own party in pursuit of keeping the democratic majority. >> i would want senator reid to be very careful because we learned from last year's elections that a decade ago, two decades ago is no longer what some of those states in terms of the electorate has become. and i think you could galvanize your vote if you took some stands in some of those states. >> congressman? >> look, the way the mayor's doing this is the way he ought to do it. i'm a democrat. i want democrats to be in a majority. but there comes a time when politics must not supersede that which is right. the majority of us in this country believes the direction we're going in terms of universal background checks is the right thing to do. if some democrats fall or stand in the way, so be it. i want to be in the majo
is paying their fair share of taxes and looking at warren buffett and mitt romney and the lack of taxes they pay and argue that is fair. >> warren buffett pays corporate taxes. >> he himself says he is paying less taxes than his secretary. >> when you look at that and the portrait of the own tax liability. fair enough. >> you take that case up with warren buffett. that's what he is saying. and when you look at sort of where corporate america is sort of profiting and american middle class wages are stagnant, you can't look at this and say that's fair. >> i agree. high corporate profits are a problem. regulation exacerbate that's problem and limits at built of startups to take on the companies. that's why even in mexico taker taking on the version of warren buffett for the very good reason that's the way you get jobs and growth by having more entrepreneurship and more growth and high corporate tax that are biassed towards the ges and buffets of the world is a burden. >> it's a weird argument to say we need more regulation when corporations are sitting on record profits. >> that happens to
been. it is very unlikely that republican presidential loser mitt romney will ever find himself in position that his finances are so tight that he has to go pitch reverse mortgages on tv, but paul ryan, marco rubio, chris christie, we have seen your future and your future is reverse mortgages. and if you study the fred thompson commercials closely enough, one day you too will be able to say this kind of thing with a straight face. >> i'm extremely proud to be associated with aag. i am extremely proud to be associated with aag. i am extremely proud to be associated with aag. my wife takes centrum silver. i've been on the fence about it. then i read an article about a study that looked at the long term health benefits of taking multivitamins. they used centrum silver for the study... so i guess my wife was right.

where mitt romney ran are vulnerable. here we have mark prior of arkansas, begihh of alaska, mary landrieu and a tlot of these people who are passionate on gun rights will remember every election from now on and vote accordingly against these people. >> well, chris, it's true that i would suggest to senators that there's some things worse than not being reelected. but i also think they give the gun lobby way too much credit. let's take harry reid, who has coward before the gun lobby if harry reid thinks it's gun lobbyists who got him back in the election, he's nuts. he lost the male vote. it was the obama coalition of union voters, young voters who put harry reid back in office. people like harry reid give the gun lobby far too much credit. >> sam, what's your reaction to that? >> they say the same thing, that the nra has trumped that. and the only thing i would add to that is this. we've seen a tlot of recent pollings, specifically background checks, and it's universally popular. i don't see any other issue polling at 90% popularity. if you read specific issues it might dip. this
and a woman, out ran mitt romney in those four liberal states by an average of 5 points. >> chris: no, we're out of time and i have to go to nicole and i want to ask one final question. how important -- and again i don't think the politics of this should be the determinative factor, and hopefully won't be in the supreme court. how important do you think same sex marriage is as a gateway issue for republicans maintaining credibility with new younger voters? >> i think what is most important is that the debate remains civilized and remain intellectual and remain a debate about the role of marriage in our lives and we have to have room in ourpat party for both mr. bauer and me. >> chris: unusual agreement, thank you both and thanks for talking with us and we'll hear what the justices have to say when they consider these two cases this week. thanks for coming in. >> thank you. >> chris: up next, we'll continue this discussion with our sunday group. will the supreme court make a sweeping decision or decide these cases on narrow grounds? ♪ impact wool exports from new zealand, textile product

the battle last year. he certainly defeated governor romney, we have not seen his approval ratings, the pupil just came out, his approval ratings a down to where bushes were in 2004. they have dropped dramatically since the election, since december. and part of that is because he has been playing tax increases. he tries to divide people and then raises taxes. he's not threatening to raise taxes on everyone. many of the taxes to pay for obamacare had all americans. it's not targeted just a few people. politicians play trickle-down taxation. this said it will tax the rich and it trickles down to tax everybody. americans have begun to figure that out. cheryl: corporate tax rate. paul ryan 1725%. you think will happen? >> eventually will because it has to because the european average is 25%. or a 35%. obama has raised taxes on subchapter s companies that pay smaller firms and some bigger ones that. the individual rate up to 44%. europe said 25. we're 35 and 44. this is one of the reasons we're not as competitive. as a self-inflicted wound. cheryl: one of the big issues that we will talk about lat
of things. three people are starting it. first of all, mitt romney's former campaign manager, matt rhodes. he stays out of the lime light most often but he's going to run this and he's the first ever campaign manager for a national presidential candidate who was, in fact, the head of r.n.c. opposition research. he made a living looking into the opposition's records. he's joined us with joe pounder, another whiz with both the opposition research and rapid response end of all of this and he, too, was involved in that at the r.n.c. and tim miller who si a spokesman at the r.n.c. and worked for the john huntsman campaign in 2012. acquitted himself as a clear communicator with the new technology. listen to their goal z. we're going to have dedicated trackers to all the democratic candidates up in big races in 2014 and all of the potential democrat rising stars down the line for 2016 races or the future and so we did not have last cycle was one organization that sole purpose was to take that video, to monitor the interviews they're doing and making sure what they're saying back home isn't diffe

community, particularly during this last election, who saw benjamin netanyahu cozying up to mitt romney, who were very skeptical about the president and israel. i think this trip as john king was saying earlier makes it very clear particularly when the president on the question of iran said all options are on the table, period, the president made it very clear as he said in his speech today, you are not alone. so i think domestically, politically, this trip is only good for the president. it makes him be seen as a leader. next to benjamin netanyahu these two men need each other in many ways right now and i think that is why you see this relationship blossoming. >> richard haas do you think anything is going to come of this? will there be a peace process any time soon? >> again, the situation is decidedly unripe given the divisions of the palestinians, the israeli government is not a government that was elected to make peace. this was a government that was elected to deal with the special privileges of the orthodox within israeli society. you got the turbulence in egypt. you will have turbule
